Pumpkin Time! ...


Don't you just love this time of year... Autumn is approaching Centerville quickly now... the weather has turned quite cool and the leaves are starting to don their fall colors... this is my very favorite time of year!... and even more special this year, I have been asked by Karen, at Brayton Homestead Interiors, to host the October Barn Chicks meeting post... everyone is welcome to sign up! Please either leave me a comment, or drop me an email to let me know you want to participate...

The party post will be on Friday, October 8th here at Idyllhours...my very first party I have given!... I am calling it "Under October's Magical Spell" ... all about beautiful barns, of course, plus pumpkins, scarecrows, Harvest moons, everything you find enchanting this most beautiful of Autumn months... if you don't have a barn to show, show off your countryside in Autumn, share a favorite recipe using pumpkin, a Harvest craft, or maybe your garden's fall bounty... It's going to be alot of fun, please join us!... xoxo... (PS I just purchased my beautiful pumpkin in the photo from Celestina Marie Designs!)...

Good morning dear friend. I love that pumpkin!!!!
I'll try to join you and the other barn chicks....I'm not sure I am a barn chick but we do have some lovely barns in Montana. We will be heading back home on the 8th but hopefully I'll have good internet connection then while on the road.

Hugs,

Jo

Hi Julie Marie,
What a beautiful pumpkin! Love it. Unfortunately there are no barns close to where I live...not that I've seen anyway and here, in my little corner of California, it doesn't really get too fally...Like with the changing of the leaves, which to me is a definite sign of fall. Too many palm trees :-) But I'm very excited that you are hosting October Barn Chicks and cannot wait to see what everyone will share. Yay! Hope you are feeling well my dear friend and that you have recuperated completely.

Hugs and Kisses,
♥Ana

Hi Julie,
Well, I just have to come to a party that you host so please count me in too.
Gee that pumpkin looks familiar. LOL You are so sweet to show it. I am glad it is in a good home with you.

We had tons of rain and tonight under a tornado warning with more rain on the way. Lots of water in the yard, but thankfully none in the house.

Talk to you soon.
Hugs XOXO Celestina Marie

Oh I just love this pumpkin. Isn't that awesome that it has a barn on it? I have loved seeing all the beautiful barns that you have been posting here. I imagine that it is getting quite lovely there in Utah about now. If it wasn't for Fall being such a lovely season, I couldn't bare to see Summer go. But aren't we lucky to live where the season change?
That little goat in your previous post braought a bg smile!
hugs to you from here...

How exciting for you to host this party Miss Julie Marie. Sounds like fun!

Now...just wanted to tell you that tomorrow I will be picking up Miss K from school as Saturday she is in another wedding and she has to go to a rehearsal. So...be watching for something from her soon! I don't have her as much now that school has started and she's a bit farther away.

Love to you my friend. Hope you are well.

You will be the perfect hostess.
Autumn is a wonderful time of year full of beautiful colours, luscious fragrance and the opportunity to wear a warm sweater.
I love the barn photo in your header... the stories it could tell.

Hi Julie Marie, I would love to join in on the fun, that is if my computer will behave itself, I've been having alot of problems with it lately. I haven't been able to leave any comments or do a post in several days, and it's been sheer torture! I'm keeping my fingers crossed it will continue to work. Blessings~~~ Daphne

Hi Julie, what a lovely blog...I love the pumpkin you purchased from Celeste, I adore her artwork and have one of her painted spoons myself.

Enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer.
